Topic:Axe Repair

  • By E.duBois, on 13 August, 2015 at 17:48

    Left to the “Open Forum” website because there is no website for axe repair. Just imagine your poll breaks, which it should never do, or you have a good axe, typically one older axe, with an insert and it wears out or you have otherwise need for service and maintenance and even repair, then what?

    I now need a new shaft for my splitting maul, where can I get one. I’m from the highlands Scotland

    Many thanks, grizz

    Do you have Rowan growing up there grizz?

    In fact I had it over a kind of repair that would call for tracking down and going to a smid with plenty competence in axe repair. It’s no idle question either ’cause I got this side axe for squaring up the timbers and it needs a new steel edge welded on there.

    Ok, not that I look to this medium as some kind of direct channel to the decision makers and question answerers at the Gränsfors Bruk, that would be a misconception which I in no way suffer under, but I can theorise an axe I got from them which similarly was needing to have a new steel laid  on. Would they be willing to take on that one, repair it for me? But still, what a pain in the ass, to put it bluntly, to pack up my 1900 single beveled, (if I had one), and send it all the way back up there to Sweden. Even the hypothetical misses the crux of the original query.

    Thank you for your kind reply, We do have rowan and Hazel but if I were to cut some this process could take some time with the drying required.

    Do Gransfors not supply replacement shafts?

    Many thanks, Grizz
